Back in November, we highlighted a Tumblr typo site leading to iPad offers. That URL was Tumbr(dot)com – a similar situation seems to be playing out in Tumblr land so this time we’re looking at Tublr(dot)com.

“Congratulations Youtube user!”

Wrong social network aside, hitting the “Ok” button takes the user to a selection of offers:

Using the one in the one in the middle as an example, it requires the completion of a “rewards bonus survey” and 13 reward offers. As before, there’s no malware involved – just offers and annoying “Are you sure you want to leave the page?” popups.

Yes, we are quite sure.
